You’ll find flights available at this price from January 2024 to May 2024. You’ll be starting from Washington, D.C.

The icing on this already delicious cake? You’ll be flying in luxury in lie-flat seats on a combination of Saudia’s Boeing 777 and Airbus A330 aircraft. We tried the product out for ourselves and enjoyed it quite a bit. Put on your complimentary slippers and enjoy the flight knowing you’re saving in excess of $1,000 when compared to typical fares on this route.
